    Abstract

    Educators often use online material to aid in student learning. After reviewing academic and corporate sources, the team determined the primary effects of the advances in genome sequencing technologies. Based on survey responses, it was determined that many people are not familiar with these effects. Consequently, the team developed a series of educational videos and supplemental assignments that provide an introduction to genome sequencing technologies, as well as their worldwide impacts on legislation, economy, forensics, health care, and biological research.
